90 Years of the Communist Party USA

Communist Party USA | Radical Ideas. Real Politics.

Dear friend,
Ninety years ago a group of union activists, grassroots organizers and other radicals gathered together to found the Communist Party in Chicago. They were inspired by American traditions of radicalism from the Sons of Liberty, the Industrial Workers of the World to the abolitionist movement as well as the Russian Revolution. These visionaries started an organization that has made an unmatched and indelible impact on American politics and culture.
Today begins a year-long celebration of the ninety years of the Communist Party in the United States. In the next few weeks we will be launching an exciting new web page to help us enter the next ninety years on the cutting edge.
For now, check out some of the great articles celebrating 90 years of the CPUSA at Political Affairs.
The September issue of Political Affairs celebrates some important aspects of the role of the Communist Party in American history. It is also packed with discussions of new theoretical questions and analysis of contemporary struggle. Please check it out here.
Here are some of the top headlines from the September issue:
Portrait in Red: The Radical Art of Alice Neel
by Political Affairs

Alice Neel was someone I was aware of for some time, specifically since 2002, when there was a large exhibit of her work at the Whitney Museum in New York. I knew her name, of course, but I really didn't know her work very well. A friend of mine said you have to go and check this out, so I did, and it just knocked my socks off.
Power of the Written Word: Communist Cultural Workers, 1919-1939
by John Pietaro

The art of rebellion is a tradition as old as dissent itself. Radical writers, musicians, painters, actors, dancers and other creative activists have long used their artwork as a tool in the fight for social justice. If the very nature of expressive freedom lends itself toward a revolutionary voice, then it is arguable that the arts gave birth to radicalism, or in the least offered a vision toward its path.
Fighting for Change: The Great Depression, the New Deal and the CPUSA
by Norman Markowitz

Communists were not the only ones calling for socialism or fighting for practical reforms to alleviate the crisis, but Communists were by far the most important and successful in their efforts. They created a new, more cohesive left, both more militant and more flexible in strategy and tactics.
